Watch GPS: Inside the world of private equity

On GPS this Sunday at 10am and 1pm EST: In light of Mitt Romney’s role at Bain Capital, we take a rare look inside the world of “private equity.” What is this industry? How does it make so much money? Is it really all about firing workers?

Fareed speaks to a pioneer of the industry: David Rubenstein of The Carlyle Group, the world’s biggest private equity firm.

Then, a panel discussion on the GOP, the economy, Iran, and more: Arianna Huffington, Mort Zuckerman, David Frum, and Steve Rattner.

Later, the most popular politician in the world’s most dangerous country: Pakistan’s former sports hero Imran Khan.

And how the Arab Spring countries are seeking inspiration and guidance from a surprising source: A former Communist state.

    While I think that Mr. Zakaria is at his best in individual interviews, I was disappointed by his performance with Mr. Rubenstein. As a host, he should not let his guests make unchallenged assertions, especially when they are obviously false. Mr. Rubenstein's denial that he has any influence over the U.S. tax code is laughable. In the absence of another guest who can dispute Mr. Rubenstein's claims, Mr. Zakaria has a responsibility to his viewers. He needs to be willing to challenge his guests when they create a self-serving narrative (lie).
